From our American office:
Relax steps from the beach at a Southern California hotel for £69 (US$111) per night, including taxes. This package slashes more than 50% off regular prices and includes:
Head to the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach daily until 30 April. Weekends cost £14 ($22) more per night. The Marina-front hotel just completed renovations last week, so all of the guestrooms are brand new.
This hotel features an oceanview recreation deck with a heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and tennis courts. In town, guests can shop on the lively pier, rent boats at the marina or bike the The Strand, a 27-mile oceanfront boardwalk.
